The Beano Makes Mischief in ‘Minecraft’

BeanoMinecraft
British comic characters Dennis the Menace and Gnasher have arrived in Mojang’s video game “Minecraft.”

Players can now add The Beano characters to PC versions of the game.

The Dennis and Gnasher Minecraft modification was developed in partnership with The Beano and Frima Studios and includes all of Dennis’ best pranks: catapults, rotten tomatoes, stink bombs and booby-trapped trumping cakes. Players can also craft a sausage to summon Gnasher, but they’ll need to watch out for Walter and his stinky underpants.

The Beano has always been about great storytelling, imagination and creativity,” says Mark Cotton, consultant, DC Thomson, publisher of The Beano. “‘Minecraft’ is a perfect match for us, providing an amazing sandbox for kids to take our characters, tell their own stories, prank their friends and build out Beanotown.”
